I had my computer unplugged because we were going to have a storm. I came home and plugged it up and it kept kicking on and off finally it said something about thermal. I was given two options F1 or F2. I ended up restoring to the previous day in safe mode.

Why did this do that and what would I need to do so it doesn't again. It seems to be working fine now.

Thanks

Did you perform a hard shut down?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I don't think so. The best I can remember I did a normal shut down and then unplugged it.

If I saw anything in an error message with the word "thermal"...I'd have to assume that I need to check CPU/system temperatures for overheating.

Why that should be on a system that's just booting...is beyond me, but that's the way that I would approach it.
